I do like that :)

Looking at the underside nice to see that it looks like it gets used, can't abide trailer queen cars.

While interesting - hard to imagine $175k value! Should ask the owner how many girls he has in his stable!!

I remember about 10 years ago when Jeff owned it - it is one sweet beast and was even road registered. It had different rims back then. Jeff Dutton is a dealer of exotic cars in Oz and this was one - I always wondered where it ended up!

Don't you love where the side mirror is in the door!

This car is very impressive to see in person, but 175K, I don't think so! [:0]

sure doesn't look like the underside of a $175k car to me. Photo 49 looks like it shows through the metal rust damage, as well as just untidy work. Chrome everything on top, even if it doesn't need it, and leave the whole underside as found?

Good luck on $175k....

Nice looking ride on the outside, but inside and underneath is disappointing.

A special car for a special buyer. The car might fetch $100K (or even less) due to its probable appeal to only a limited audience. This is not to say it is a nice car. It certainly is that.....especially in the head-turning/special interest department. But....there are many cars out there in original collector condition selling for far less than the asking price that will certainly point to price appreciation in the future as well as boast originality and curb appeal.

The undercarriage shows that this car is not show-quality; as such, buyer beware. Seems to me that the seller would at least have detailed the bottom of the car to better promote its sale. Also, those God-awful chrome pieces should be painted to match the rest of the car. Way too gaudy and distracting.

Maybe I have been watching too many Russo & Steele auctions. [8D]

I agree, with all the work that has been done to this car, why didn't they finish the work? Maybe, the car was modified for some kind of class racing like at the salt flats or dry beds. That would explain some of the mods. Anyway, very interesting car.

It seems to mimic the old Carrera Spyder coupe that has been featured in several publications.

Easy guys, someone did a whole lot of work for what ever reason. Over the years you see competition cars that are not finished off and are in rough condition, I think thats what happen to this car. Someone was modifying this car for competition of some sort for a class or venue. So, when you speak of it, please be kind. [:0]
